Mark Webster has made an outstanding contribution to CSANZ over four decades. Upon his return to Green Lane Hospital from the Mayo Clinic, he has served on multiple CSANZ Board Committees including the Professional and Ethical Standards Committee (PESC) and the Continuing Education and Recertification Committee (CERC) and he was the Convenor of 2001 CSANZ ASM. Mark has been a member of the NZ Regional Committee Executive for much of the past 25 years, serving as Secretary from 2000-2002.  In 2011, Mark was appointed the NZ-elected CSANZ Board Member.

Mark’s wisdom and leadership are valued by the cardiology community and Society alike. This was reflected when he was voted President-elect of the Society in 2015. During Mark’s tenure as President he forged a closer relationship with the European Society of Cardiology and the American College of Cardiology.  He oversaw financial optimisation of the Annual Scientific Meetings and he lead the Society into areas of accreditation and national registries – he continues as a Board member of the Australasian Cardiac Outcomes Registry (ACOR).
